Great pictures and thank you.
I can't get excited by 3k miles even if it looks new which it does.
The competition is proven at over 20k.
I did over 24k on an Ultra. It looked great too.
Time will tell.

For a comparison this is a Fram TG on 3,001 miles.

Does the Purolator Boss have a thick or thin can?

It is thick and heavy. Hard on the filter cutter.

Both filters look brand new and very good as they should for such low mileage.

Don't you know Purolators tear? Usually after 3,000 feet? How dare you endanger your engine like that....

Looks great! Thanks for the C&P!

The Boss pleating is as good as it gets, even at the seam. How about a picture of the top and bottom of the TG to see how the end caps fit onto the center tube? That has been my complaint with them.

I love the tough structure of the Boss. Very well made filter! I really wish the efficiency ratings were equal with the Ultra. It would be my go to filter.

I have a Boss reserved for some rock climbing exercises with my Montero. Although; I have a few skid plates for protection.

Nice pics. Oil still looks new. Thanks for posting!


Respectfully,

Pajero!
